Emerging Powerhouse Cannabis Multi-State Operator Holistic Industries Raises $55 Million
Investment enables expansion in states, dispensaries, and operations for greater patient and consumer access to high-quality cannabis products
Washington D.C. – October 17, 2019 – Holistic Industries, one of the largest and fastest-growing private vertically-integrated cannabis operators in the United States, today announced that it closed $55 million in funding. The multi-state operator (MSO), which started on the East Coast and has rapidly expanded to the Midwest and West Coast, currently operates in California, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C., with numerous licenses pending across the country. It has won the vast majority of its licenses in merit-based competitive license application processes. Holistic Industries will use the funding to accelerate expansion and provide greater access for patients and consumers to its high-quality cannabis products and retail experience that are the hallmarks of Holistic Industries and its brands.
Holistic Industries has a unique model and approach that enables it to win licenses, scale operations, and introduce national brands successfully in highly regulated markets. The company has proven to be a responsible steward of capital since its inception by sourcing licenses on merit rather than simply acquiring them on the open market.
From the highest quality products and store design, to putting employees first and managing assets responsibly, we are a true operator with ambition to be the best place to work, shop and invest in the cannabis industry. Our mission is to provide patients and customers access to the safest and highest-quality products possible, and with this latest investment, we will continue to deliver on that mission.
